About the trainer
George Anderson, BA, CPP
George is a senior management consultant and security specialist with over 25 years of leadership and management experience in the public sector. He is the former director of Safety, Security and Investigations for a Manitoba crown agency. George holds Bachelor’s degrees in Social Sciences and Criminal Justice and is a certified protection professional with a focus on violence risk assessment. He has significant experience presenting training seminars, and his fusion of in-the-trenches business experience and real-life stories connects with his clients and audiences at an intimate and individual level. George is a popular presenter of our Violence Threat Assessment and De-escalating Potentially Violent Situations™ workshops.
After a violent incident, it is not uncommon to find that many people were aware of clues that violence was being planned. Yet, without a clearly defined process to gather information and assess the situation, violence prevention is extremely difficult. This workshop provides a communication and decision-making model to help businesses, schools, organizations and communities become more effective in their management of threats. Participants will learn strategies to help them identify, assess and manage individuals who may be escalating towards violence.
